Right. More aggressive for sure, although whether or not that translates to "more effective", who knows? Still up in the air.

I definitely don't expect to shut you guys down, that would be pretty unreasonable. But I do hope to see us force a couple of turnovers and be able to get off the field in 3rd and long situations, both of which have been our achille's heel for several years now. I suspect we'll still get gashed for a big play here and there, but at least it feels as if there's some tangible reward associated with the risks we're likely to take.

Sounds very familiar! End the end, I think both our teams are very, very similar. We both have a potent offense coupled with a mediocre defense. We've both made a lot of moves on the defensive side of the ball during the offseason. I reckon it all comes down to which defense can buy into the newer scheme and be successful the quickest.

An interesting turn this thread has took, for I was browsing some Saints forums the other day seeking their opinion on Mario Williams after all these years. Apparently many if not most still believe Reggie Bush to be the superior pick. The reasoning, from what I understand, is that Bush enables their offense more than Mario Williams would have enabled their defense, and that Bush was integral for their playoff run, while we still have yet to have a winning season even with Mario.

And the VAST majority of New Orleans voted for Obama. Nuff said. LOL

It's called drinking the hometeam koolade.
If we had Reggie, I'd be defending that pick too. And with Deuce and Pierre Thomas running effectively between the tackles they aren't desparate for him to carry the rushing load. And with Bush being quasi-effective part of the passing game and special teams he's not a complete waste of a uni. So if I were a Saints fan, I would try and make that argument.

Well above average as a punt returner. Serviceable, but below avg receiver. Serviceable, but below avg RB. If it wasn't for his punt returning skills, my guess is that he wouldn't be on the roster. Give him points for versatility. He's not a bust, just overdrafted. If he had been picked in R2 or R3, probably no one would complain.

I was a guest at practice this morning, besides it being one the coolest things I've gotten to do in a while, it was hot and packed with spectators. The whole U of H and Rice teams were there. There were 5 big fights too, I think shockey started 3 of them that punk, demeaco took him to the ground...

I watched the D most of the time and they looked good seein how we are missing Brian and Dunta. I got some cool pics I'll figure out how to post.

Go Texans


Ps oh and Reggie B got a little banged up, if your intrested

Shockey is just mad that he hasn't mattered in 3 years...I hope he's smart enough to stay out of Meco's grill, 59 is still a little bit thicker than Shockey's head.

I know there was 2 on the defense's field. I heard 2 rumbles over on the offensive field, but maybe there were a couple smaller one's over there that I didn't hear.

Mario should dominate Saturday. Saints LT Brown will be out with what is beleived to be a sports hernia. Mario was a constant presence in the backfield today against whoever backed up LT.

Bush might've tweaked his knee during after practice drills. Imagine that

Lot of similarities between us and the Saints. The reason they made a playoff run and we haven't yet is Schaub can't stay on the field. And from the looks of our backups this morning, we won't this year either if Schaub can't stay healthy.

Even if Drew Brees were to go down, they have Mark Brunell as their #2. I watched that "old man" out there today.
He can still chuck it.

...wonder if they'd trade him to us for T.J. and Dan-O?

Sorry but the plain fact is, compared to Sage, Dan needs work.
He doesn't absolutely suck but we're used to seeing Sage @ #2 and the offense didn't miss a beat. Dan just isn't at that level yet.

But then again, one must consider Sage has four years of experience over Dan. He SHOULD be better.
